HMC Architects announces 2010 winners of travel fellowship

Each spring, HMC Architects awards two travel fellowships to meritorious employees to encourage the exploration of other cultures and to strengthen the creative ethos of the firm. Each entrant submits a destination and describes how the experience would contribute to their personal vision and professional growth. This year, the winners of the competition are Yunnan Allen, LEED® AP and Danny Schapker. Each will receive a $4,000 travel stipend and an additional week of paid time off to complete their proposed journey.

Allen is a designer in HMC Architects’ Los Angeles office whose submittal was entitled ‘China Rising: Extreme Juxtaposition’. She proposed to immerse herself in the diverse musical heritage of China as an auditory link to its culture. Travelling from Beijing to Shanghai to Dali, she will conclude her adventure with intensive violin training in Kunming. She will document her trip with a mix of journals, photo diaries, and audio recordings.

Schapker is a designer in HMC Architects’ Irvine office, who has always dreamed of archeology. His entry was titled ‘Archeological Expedition—Romania’. He planned a three-week journey to Romania to pursue his lifelong dream in a place considered to be one of the few remaining archeological frontiers. While training with a volunteer archeological group called Projects Abroad, he will begin his adventure in Deva, join an actual dig in Avrig, and work with the Museum in Alba Julia and Cluj.
